“Fast Good & Cheap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

The classic Thai soups are as good as you may remember in Thailand. The entrees are generally above average. Been there many times, never disapointed.

Servers - especially Phillip - are friendly & efficient.

Lunch specials are always a good option, but I prefer going for dinner (more food).

T.S. is moving at the end of November, so look for them on Indian Avenue, close to the Casino. They'll have more room and a patio - but no parking :(

Current location has 0 ambiance, but maybe the new digs will.

“Nice food huge portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013 via mobile

We ate here for dinner and the place was buzzing, nice atmosphere. We were seated after a few mins wait. We had the soups to start which were really nice. For our main course we had the Thai red and green curry with rice, the portions were huge, the flavours good, but they use chilli flakes rather than fresh chillies in their dishes which being a lover of spice I was a little disappointed in. Service was fine, but they are clearly rushed. Overall nice food, but where are the spicy prawn crackers?

“good food reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

this restaruant has been around for a long time and deservedly so. their food is freshly prepared and delicious and pretty authentic. it is a comfortable place to go. it is always busy becasue they do really decent food. I love their eggplant dish, and i love their tofu dish and this coming from a carnivore! their duck dishes are really wonderful prices are reasonable and it is a good place to go with a group of people and share dishes.

“Great Thai Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

If your looking for Thai food in Palm Springs this is THE place. Located in the "design district" away from the tourist bars is well worth the effort. Great food served by friendly people who actually are smiling. . . . Very casual, smaller room and they are planning on moving this winter so call before you visit.
